Requisites: <$1100 USD & Black/Red theme. Also don't forget I'm getting the MSI 1070, but the 970 is there as a placeholder.

Any reason for the 16gb of RAM? Dunno what prices are like in the USA (i'm down under) but by cutting out 8gb you might be able to get a faster/bigger SSD or save that for a better GTX 1070.

Longevity and because some games like Star Citizen use like 12GB.

Yeah, ok that would definitely help. Seems like you had it all under control.
